Apero Snack – Corndale bacon bites
A simple Moorish snack which is easy to prepare and delish served with a cool MacIvors cider.
Ingredients – Corndale free range back bacon
The key is to keep the bacon crispy and straight and to achieve this simply lay out an oven tray with baking paper, lay the bacon slices on the paper, cover with a layer of baking paper and place another (heavy) tray on top to secure. Place in a preheated oven to 185 degrees, place double layered tray with the bacon in the oven for approx. 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to drain on a wire trays, serve cold with ice cold cider or beer.
Lunch Platter – Nduja pate
One of our favourite Corndale Farm products is Nduja, a spicy spreadable sausage which is extremely versatile and The French Rooms have featured it on a number of daily specials.
We add cream cheese to Nduja on a 1:4 ratio to make the consistency even more smooth and spreadable and this has become a popular addition to our charcuterie selection which includes a combination of Corndale Farm and Broughgammon Farm sliced meat. Adding the cream cheese also takes away some of the heat, try spreading on warm crusty bread and we defy you to grab your phone to order some!
